Jess Gillam & London Mozart Players

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

This event has been cancelled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis.

Former BBC Young Musician finalist saxophonist Jess Gillam joins London Mozart Players in works including Nyman’s electrifying ‘Where the Bee Dances’.

Gillam brings virtuosity and ‘life-affirming talent’, as described in the BBC Young Musician of the Year final, to an evening that takes in Glazunov’s romantic and beautifully lyrical Saxophone Concerto.

The programme is completed by LMP favourites from classical giants Mozart and Haydn.

Gillam burst onto the music scene in 2016 as the first saxophonist ever to reach the final of the BBC Young Musician competition.

She has wowed audiences and inspired young musicians with her passion for music ever since – her first album, Rise, released in April 2019, shot to number one in the UK’s Official Classical Charts.

If you thought the saxophone was just for jazz, think again: this is an extraordinary night of music-making from a Classical Brit-winning soloist and an internationally celebrated orchestra.
